Dear Mother,

I take this opportunity of writing to you to let you
know that I am well and hope that these few lines may find
you and the rest of them well.

We have crossed over the Kentucky line and have gone
over into Tennessee twenty-five miles. It is a very nice
place here and it is not cold either. It is about as warm here
now as it is in September in Ohio.

The 31st Ohio regiment is within a mile and a half of
here but I. have not seen any of them and don't expect to, for
we are not through traveling yet. We expect to leave here
this afternoon or tomorrow and go to Lebanon, Tennessee.
I do not know when we will stop to stay any time nor don't
care much, for I have gotten so used to traveling that it does
not tire me.

I have not gotten any letters from any of the folks for
about two weeks. I must close and march.
